ABOUT THE EVENING OF IMPACT AND VISIONARY AWARD

Evening of Impact

The Evening of Impact is Resilience’s largest annual gathering inviting donors, partners, friends, and allies to celebrate our impact in the lives of survivors and our continued work to create a world free of sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. Proceeds from the evening go toward supporting Resilience’s programs and services, helping to ensure that survivors and their communities continue to have access to vital resources and a place to heal.

Visionary Award

The Dr. Natalie A. Stephens Visionary Award recognizes the work of far-sighted leaders who have made a powerful and lasting impact on the movement to end sexual violence. The award is named in honor of our late founder, Dr. Natalie A. Stephens, who served as an OB/GYN at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and, together with ten medical and nursing students, founded Rape Victim Advocates in 1974 to provide survivors with a place of healing.
